Chardonnay Freycinet Tasmania
The philosophy at Freycinet is to keep things simple, traditional Burgundian techniques are employed, the aim is to make a multi dimensioned, complex and creamy textured Chardonnay with generous palate. Fully ripened grapes provide the foundation to which the techniques of barrel fermentation under tightly grained French oak, lees stirring and malolactic are applied, enhancing the natural complexity, texture and layers of character in the completed wine.
Chardonnay is completely barrel fermented in a selection of new and seasoned French oak casks for ten months, matured on yeast lees and periodically treated to battonage, developing complexity and richness.
A light straw colour. Delicate aroma features citrus and melon fruits with soft oak nuances. The palate is pristine, fresh and vibrant, revealing ripe melon, white peach and grapefruit flavours subtly supported by spicy oak and creamy textures. Power with elegance, the finish is seamless.
